What a truly great piece of architecture, sadly it looks like it's now gone.

The original looked more like a C19th farmhouse - for many years one of the main activities was the unloading of horse shit from London, which was used in the many nearby market gardens and orchards. Paper from the Cray valley mills would go in the other direction.,

Eindhoven.

 

 

 

The third row (ignoring the DKW) has got me puzzling over the cars either side of the 2cv and also the white car to the right of the Mercedes.  Any ideas?

 

Edit`: The one to the left of the 2cv may be a Renault Dauphine and the white car may (with less confidence) be a VW Beetle - but it doesn't look quite right.

Can't be sure on the 2CV flankers, but the white car next to the Ponton looks like a "Buckel" G73A Taunus (1948-52)

Well done! That's a new one on me.  I don't recall ever seeing one when I lived in Germany for three years (1966-69).  We often went shopping in Eindhoven - we were just across the border at Bruggen and later Wegberg.

Left of the 2CV is a Dauphine, to its right is a Fiat 1100/103.

It's no wonder you didn't see a Buckeltaunus in the late 60s.

 

Besides, the "DKW" is a Ford Anglia.

Looks like it is flying over the Shorts seaplane factory just upstream from Rochester Castle

Those traffic lights, colloquially known as "tin lanterns", are highly sought after by collectors now.

The Anglia has a DKW badge on the front  :-D .  The fronts are similar though.

I'm guessing you know the area well through your sailing? I've re-uploaded the pic which had been mysteriously cropped through the ether, it's now as it should've been.

We used to sail upstream of Rochester when I was  a kid and Dad had a small boat on which we could lower the mast to get under the town bridges (which used to be two railway and one road but are now two road and one rail). The factory was still there I think but not used by Shorts. Now its all housing and the M2 motorway crosses the river in the top RH corner of your pic.

I could be totally wrong but don't see where else it could have been. We would see Rochester and its bridges, castle and cathedral but they are obscured by the plane if I am right.

That's clearly a DKW, but the car in the third row is an Anglia.

A local vehicle hire firm has put up a couple of pictures on a local history Facebook page from the early 1980s when they were operating out of a portacabin next to Barnstaple train station - they're a lot bigger now with premises on a commercial estate and the site is now the station's car park.

I know nothing of the lorries but always enjoy a Mk2 Transit.  They did a nice line in Cavaliers, too.
